Hi
I know the St D exam was only Wednesday but they are usually quick at letting you know about interview or a no thank you. With the new online exam format this year which seems to have had mixed reviews I was expecting to hear quickly via email. As they don't have any marking to do apart from a piece of creative writing! Anyway anxious to hear from others...

No, not heard anything either. Online should speed things up, otherwise not sure what the point is?

citykat no one I know has heard a word which is irritating. When my daughter sat the exam in 2014 we got a letter within 48hrs! So I was expecting a quick turn around with the new format. Bloody frustrating...

Has anybody heard from St Dustans yet?

It would have been good if they would have given a date when the letters inviting or not inviting to interviews would be sent. They said on the letter that children who would not be invited to an interview would be informed as soon as possible but can't believe it has taking them so long considering it was all on the computer.

Colfes informed within 2 days of the exam if the child was not invited to an interview. Perhaps no news is good news.

Noone i know that sat St D have heard a thing. I know interviews are in small groups running from Monday- Friday next week with scholarships on the 20th and 27th. But i was expecting to hear by now.

From what I remember last year they did the exam on wed 11th and interview was following Thursday 19th - think we found out about interview on the Monday (16th) before, by letter I think ? The interviews were staggered with some people being informed of interviews before us, some after

user1475317873 Tue 16-Jan-18 21:08:56

I guess we will hear by Friday

user1471536045 Wed 17-Jan-18 00:12:09

I 've not heard anything yet.

With my DD we were advised within two days of the exam and her interview was the following Monday. They have changed the interviews now so they are in groups. However given the exam is online apart from a piece of writing I had expected to hear promptly. My OH is calling them today

Just got an email from St D to invite my DS for the sports scholarship assessment this Friday. No mention of interview but I am assuming its good news!

user1475317873 Wed 17-Jan-18 19:08:27

Great! At least something is happening. Good luck to your son with the scholarship.

user1471536045 Wed 17-Jan-18 19:47:43

Good news come on Wedneday and Friday news- not too great. All the best for the sports scholarship-spacecadet48.

user1475317873 Wed 17-Jan-18 20:34:44

Let's hope it just means that they are not very organised and are informing first people who applied for scholarships as it is in 2 days.

spacecadet48 Wed 17-Jan-18 22:06:00

user1475317873 I think so too as i dont know of anyone who has been informed of an interview yet.

A parent at DC school said that they've been invited to attend a scholarship assessment too. No word of an interview either

spacecadet48 Thu 18-Jan-18 14:16:55

St D have advised that anyone who has been invited a sports scholarship assessment has passed exam and will hear about interview today or tomorrow. So that i would expect means everyone will hear then too!

spacecadet48 Fri 19-Jan-18 21:17:59

emails finally being sent out for interviews!

Trying44 Fri 19-Jan-18 21:21:10

Still haven't heard anything! Called the school today and they have told me as they did yesterday that letters will be sent out today as will emails! No email received as of yet.

Trying44 Fri 19-Jan-18 21:22:56

Trying44 Sat 20-Jan-18 10:08:27

spacecadet48 Sat 20-Jan-18 10:27:01

Some of my friends got emails yesterday some for interview next week and a couple for the academic scholarship one on the 27th. They have advised that we should get an email either yesterday or today so hears hoping.....
